You can use the rear pin and spacer set from the 4wd and use B4 wheels if you want. I've been doing this to use the 4wd rear buggy wheels.

Guys trust me the larger hexes are needed. I've stripped out wheels before at the 12mm size. Especially fronts on the 4wd on high bite tracks. Understand that this car is designed at the world level, not just U.S. If you've ever driven on turf the bite they get is phenomenal.

Also the larger hex should help prevent wobbling and offers a larger mating face to the wheel.

I used to run Corally sedans and we had the snap rings on the diffs. First couple times you struggle but once you get the feel for the clips they're easy to work with.

But thats for the rears only right?

Cpt America: get one of the clips with a big circle as a head then bend it a little, that way you and I can still grip the clip and get it on all at the same time

Good question. I'm interested in rear traction vs the two. Especially with the rm4 setup of the dex, but the losi has the longer wheelbase.

Default diff problemz

Still having problems. Diff is built correctly and tight still slipping. I ground down the nub on one outdrive and it helped a little.

Time to take it apart, post some pics of all the parts layed out please.

This is a simple diff to build. There is only one loose shim that could be missed. IF trimming the outdrive "nub" helped then the thrust assembly isn't full seated.

The rm4 will likely offer about as much rear bite as you can get in a 2wd car. The problem is keeping enough on power steering to make it really useful. I talked to Fischer today and he really likes the rm3 setup the best.

As for the wheelbase, the car was designed around world distribution first, but I suspect they will address the longer wheelbase for US tracks relatively soon.

Here is a couple shots of Fish Daddy's car with the lid off:

I will have my 210 this Tueday. I should have just paid the $20 to get it faster. oh well its giving me time to read all the tips. I haven't drove a 2 wheel drive buggy since 1993. I still need to buy tires. What would be a good tire for a high bite clay track?

Losi Pink Tapers or BK bars
Hot Bodies Pink Beams and Fullshots
Proline MC Suburbs and Scrubs
JCon Green Barcodes (I don't use Jcon tires a lot)
Panther Clay Switches
any of the AKA tires for buggy should work too in Super Soft Compound

What do you mean longer wheelbase?
